What Does the 2018 Kia Forte Have to Offer?

Why mess with a great thing? With all the major aspects of the Forte carrying over from the 2017, the things that have changed for the 2018 model have changed for the better. 


Package enhancements bring standard cruise control to the LX trim with automatic transmission, while the LX Popular Package now includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration and smartphone-projected navigation. The LX Popular Plus Package adds a new alloy wheel design, LED taillights, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The S model gets 16-inch alloy wheels, while the Technology Package now comes with a sunroof. More advanced safety and driver-assistance features can be found on the EX sedan, including blind-spot detection with lane-changing assistance and a rear cross-traffic alert. 

The three trims-LX, S, and EX-all bring an impressive selection of desirable features to an affordable price point, making the 2018 Kia Forte once again a compact sedan that surpasses the expectations of drivers in and around Locust Grove, Falmouth, and Sealston. .

The Kia Forte through the Years

The Kia Forte came onto the scene for the 2009 model year and was marketed as an economical alternative to other compact cars available at the time. Originally offered with a 2.0L or 2.4L I-4 engine, it first appeared as a four-door sedan, but a two-door coupe body style soon followed, as well as a hatchback style called the Forte5 that appeared in 2010. Options were plentiful in the Forte, from a handful of trim levels to available upgrades. .

The next couple of years saw few changes to the Forte, but 2013 brought about upgraded sound insulation technology and added LED running lights as well as power folding side mirrors. The 2014 model year brought two new powertrain options, a base 1.8L I-4 and a direct-injected 2.0L I-4 with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. .

The 2017 model changes focused largely on aesthetic tweaks and upgraded technology, adding the UVO infotainment system. The 1.8L base engine was replaced by a port-injected Atkinson Cycle 2.0L. .


The Kia Forte continues to shine among other compact cars on the road, and with a price that puts certain other brands to shame, it has a broad fan base of drivers looking to get the most bang for their buck. .
